More charges likely in Washington police killing

Prosecutors are expected to file more charges against people accused of helping an ex-convict after he allegedly killed four police officers in an ambush at a Washington state coffee shop.

They include Darcus D. Allen, the man accused of being the getaway driver for Maurice Clemmons as he fled the coffee shop in Parkland on Sunday. Allen served time in an Arkansas prison with Clemmons.

Two women accused of giving Clemmons first aid and rides also may be charged Wednesday in Tacoma. Three other people appeared Tuesday in Pierce County Superior Court.

Two brothers, Eddie Lee Davis and Douglas Edward Davis, are charged with rendering criminal assistance. A third man, Clemmons' half-brother Rickey Hinton, was ordered held pending charges.

Clemmons was shot and killed early Tuesday by a Seattle police officer.
